    I worked at Websense full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Websense products are mostly well thought through, and there is real market need for them.

    Cons

    On technology level, design and implementation is very, very poor. There is no willingness for change, and all efforts are focused on patching existing software that is seriously under performing, full of bugs (every new update introduces more), crashing regularly and is not scalable.

    Poor management, promotions based on length of service rather than achievements, pay lagging behind the market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Having, even the greatest vision, and just talking about it, even a lot, will not make it reality.
    And you cannot teach old dog new tricks, some people need to be replaced.
